In mid October we were looking how to spend our last few nights on Crete before a return to Athens. We had previously seen the town of Zaros, the Hotel Keramos and Katerina discussed on Trip Advisor, so we booked there just two days before. Fortunately a room was available. We departed from Chania in the AM and arrived in Zaros and at Hotel Keramos a few hours later (it always seemed to take us longer to drive anywhere in Crete than we were told). Almost no English was spoken, but we were warmly greeted by Katerina, a pot of fragrant tea and cookies. Katerina seemed surprised and smiled when I spoke her name. Such a reasonable rate for our two nights there. The room was small but adequate and we found the balcony useful for a game of scrabble. Breakfast? Yes indeed an "event" as other described. Far too much to eat, but the bag provided gave us our lunch for those two days. My fondest memory is the breakfast room filled with about 20 people and Katerina happily walking through, arms waving in the air, greeting all: "Kal-e-mera, kal-e-mera." Definitely recommended. We wanted to purchase some of the tea, so were told to go to the taverna next to the church in the next village (Nivritos). Wow, talk about hospitality! See review of Kalemaki Taverna.
